Priti Patel likely to be sacked over secret Israel meetings, reports say

Downing Street confirmed that the worldwide development secretary had asked officials from her department to look into whether public funds could be used to support the work after holding secret meetings with Israeli figures including Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister.

"I had two separate sources get in touch with me saying in a meeting that the Prime Minister held in September, Priti Patel discussed with Mrs May the idea of sharing aid with Israel and that she had met with Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss this".

In her resignation, Ms Patel apologised and said her actions "fell below the standards of transparency and openness that I have promoted and advocated".

May responded in a letter, saying: "Now that further details have come to light, it is right that you have chose to resign and adhere to the high standards of transparency and openness that you have advocated".

The latest revelations come after Patel was forced to apologise for holding 12 undisclosed meetings in Israel without government officials present while on a family holiday in August.

In other words, if you get a note like this from Netflix , or anyone else, don't just go clicking on any links inside. In an email statement to The Independent, the company said it takes the security of its members seriously .

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Ms Patel said: "I offer a fulsome apology to you and to the Government for what has happened and offer my resignation".

In a lengthy statement, Patel admitted her mistake.

Patel also clarified previous remarks to the Guardian newspaper on Friday in which she had appeared to suggest that British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson knew of her schedule beforehand.

Was Priti Patel acting with your authorisation in any of the meetings she held during her visit to Israel?

On 7 September, she met Gilad Erdan, the minister for public security, and was photographed with him on the House of Commons terrace.

Jones got past Coleman and had a step on him heading into the end zone, but quarterback Matt Ryan's pass attempt was overthrown. Defensive end Mario Addison followed up Horton's sack with one of his own on the next play for a 6-yard loss.

According to the Press Association, Downing Street was told about the NY breakfast with Rotem when Patel revealed the details of her trip to Israel, but only learnt on Tuesday about the meeting in Parliament with Erdan.

"In hindsight, I can see how my enthusiasm to engage in this way could be misread, and how meetings were set up and reported in a way which did not accord with the usual procedures. I am sorry for this and I apologize for it".

Ms Patel was also reported to have visited the Golan Heights, territory disputed between Israel and Syria, which British officials tend to avoid. "The foreign secretary did become aware of the visit, but not in advance of it".

The imminent sacking of cabinet minister Priti Patel took another turn this morning when a journalist revealed Theresa May's office did know about her meetings in Israel.

Patel, who was born in London to a Ugandan Indian immigrant family, is - or was - a rising star on the right wing of the Conservative Party and a zealous advocate of leaving the E.U. Her political idol is Margaret Thatcher, who served as prime minister from 1979 to 1990 and died in 2013.

Ms Patel is given a face-to-face reprimand by the Prime Minister and reminded about her "responsibilities under the ministerial code".
